So are you going to be a door pinner? Just pin the joint and not let the glue setup?
That would work. I've had many door manufacturers ask me to buy their doors and that's the first thing I ask them. Do you pin your doors in a squarer and then just take them out without the glue curing. I haven't had any of them say no. No sale. I tried some doors that were pinned by a local company and the joints cracked the paint soon after. Not only do they pin instead of clamp, they don't put glue in the shoulder, just the tenon. So there is a non glued area that is subject to movement which will crack a painted finish.
I haven't had the chance to use it yet, but the way it looked in the video, you leave the stiles a little proud during assemble & as it clamps, it first pushes the stiles even with the rails then clamps the rails tight & square.How does it maintain door dimensions...or do you need to account for over cutting panel slots?

I use a little acid brush to spread it out on all surfaces of the tenon and shoulder. Get a little squeeze out.I also picked up the stile glue spreader. Won't be no starved joints coming out of our shop. I quit having cracked joints once I made sure to get glue on all surfaces & a little squeeze out on the face.
Hey, I've got one of those.Rescued this cordless variable speed reversible drill from a dark cluttered corner of my sis-in-laws garage. Her hubby owned a furniture repair and upholstery business for many years. I’ll probably never use it, but at least it has a home.
I do too, but shouldn't need to going forward. Here's the glue spreader. Cut your profile on the plastic block & it applies it to both stiles at the same time. https://www.jamesltaylor.com/product/stile-spreader-guile-applicator-160b/I use a little acid brush to spread it out on all surfaces of the tenon and shoulder.
